comment Windows 8 installation fails to start
Good call, however, my BIOS was already set to AHCI when setup failed to load. On a similar and interesting point, when I tried to install Windows 7 on the same exact hardware (and settings), its setup also hung on 'Setup is starting', until I switched from AHCI to IDE mode, after which the Windows 7 install completed successfully. I have not tried Windows 8 install with IDE mode yet, and my BIOS does not have a 'Compatible' option to use.

Thanks, but this doesn't really tell me anything about how to fix my issue.

comment Install two different versions of same application on OSX?
I suppose virtualizing would be one way to work around the problem, but given the nature of games as they use graphics drivers/hardware, I'd be suspicious of potential incompatibilities.

comment Why is my computer 'freezing' during OS loading & POST?
Flashed my BIOS from an old revision (801) to the newest stable one (1902), and the crashes persist: I'm ruling out the BIOS. Also reduced the memory to a single (new) stick, to no effect. Checked all the identifiable heat sinks, and none were 'too hot' to hold a finger to. Next step... replace the motherboard?

Though I have some OC-tinkering friendly hardware, I haven't had the guts to actually mess with those settings: no overclocking done here. I'll wipe the BIOS tonight, and test each memory module individually. And what exactly is a warped board? Sounds bad :(

Sounds like a plan, I'll try to do some more testing for overheating. I've been routinely disconnecting the power completely after troubleshooting sessions, but not in between reboots. What are your thoughts about the possibility of a corrupted BIOS? Most of the BSODs I have gotten are 'USB related'...

Yargghhh... it's the sad but obvious case I didn't want to admit, then. =\
